Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information for the SBCC Community
How SBCC is Responding
At a special Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees meeting held on August 5, 2021, the Board passed Resolution No. 1 - COVID-19 Immunization. The resolution requires “full” (as defined by the U.S. Center for Disease Control) COVID-19 vaccination by October 1, 2021; all students, employees, and members of the public should have their second shot of Pfizer or Moderna - or their first shot of Johnson & Johnson - vaccine by Sept. 17th in order to qualify for full vaccination by October 1st. Immunization verification must be provided to SBCC as a condition of:
- Entering an SBCC campus building
- Attending an in-person SBCC class
- Using a service located off-campus
This applies to all students, employees, and members of the public unless they have obtained an approved exemption based on medical, disability, religious grounds, or a deferral based on pregnancy.
Santa Barbara City College is coordinating with our County Department of Public Health to provide ongoing information and guidance. SBCC has Pandemic protocols in our Emergency Operations Plan. A team at the College meets regularly to review, update and implement protocols to respond to any impacts relating to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). SBCC has issued a COVID-19 Prevention and Response Plan which is available below:
We are continuing to monitor this evolving situation. This webpage has been set up to provide ongoing updates to our Campus Community.
